    Brief Description

    This cookie bakes up nicely with a good texture and great taste.

    Main Ingredient:

    Chocolate Chips

    Cuisine:  American

    Prep Time: 15 min
    Cook Time: 8 min

    Notes

    The key to this cookie is to not overcook it! I usually bake two or three cookies in order to adjust the timing. Check the first batch at 8 minutes. The top of the cookies should be quite soft. They should not be raw but should be lightly set. Using a small spatula, carefully lift one edge of a cookie. If it is between light and medium brown they are ready to be removed from the oven (if not, then bake it for one more minute and check again). Keeping them on the baking sheet for a few minutes after removing them from the oven allows the cookies to finish baking and to firm up a bit before placing them on the cooling rack.
    To make pecan cookies, omit the chocolate chips, and dip the top of the raw cookie drop in to a small bowl of water and then dip into brown sugar.
    These freeze really well!
